Re: What to ask of a Panelbeater for this repair?

Hello again, Jim

My problem is I probably know too much about cars for my own good (From age 5yo, 65 years ago) i used to help my late father work on the family cars - the first being an Austin 7 and holding a leadlamp for him, made from an old custard tin.

From age about 18, i was fortunate enough to buy several new cars - always Renault and often, service and repairs by the agents were poor so I started to buy Haynes manuals and did most of routine sericing and repairs myself in the intervening years.

I therefore am aware of the implications of the kind of body damage which happened here - future rust if not done properly.

Anyway, its no good futzing about what happened - I will just have to wait for some advice and suggestions about what can be done here.
